I'm sure glad I read the reviews. I quickly cancelled my hold on this. Why would our public library spend good money on this? To be "fair and balanced"? Nonsense! Public libraries should promulgate knowledge, not anti-science quackery.

This is lies and falsehoods pretending to be "new knowledge." There are a lot of interviews of "experts" with questionable credentials. The few real scientists have had their views used out of context to support a cynical and grossly ignorant stance that the earth is but a few thousand years old. Young Darwin's trip to the Galapagos Islands and his observations are misused, overemphasized, and twisted to the point of being unrecognizable - which is the point here: make science appear incidental and contradictory. Why? To support Creationist fiction. A fiction that generates a lot of money and power these days. Hopefully you recognize this so called "documentary" as the laughable garbage it and it's creators truly are.

Kev' PICkS : For an alternative to this movie,.. be sure to see the excellent exploration into the struggling development and the rabid resistance concerning Charles Darwin's ideas,.. "Darwin's Brave New World".

This DVD is a blatant piece of non-scientific propaganda, produced by Creationist Ministries International. This organization seeks to propagate creationist (i.e. Biblical) theories that are CONTRARY to the theory of evolution Darwin worked so hard to understand and explain. In short, this program is anti-Darwinian.

If you are searching for a DVD to learn more about Darwin's work, stay away from this one!

This is NOT an authentic, unbiased Charles Darwin biography. Rather, this film is 100% creationist propaganda. The first red flag of this film's biased nature pops up before the film begins: it is produced by Creation Ministries. That's right: this film is a production of Young Earth Creationists (YEC). YECs typically profess a dogmatic belief in Biblical literalism; this included a presupposition that the earth is AT MOST 10000 years ole--obviously and ridiculously wrong compared to the well known, noncontroversial FACT that the earth is about 4.6 billion years old. Due to thier unyeilding beleif in Biblical literalism, YECs also champion an absurd psuedoscience known as Flood Geology--yes, because of the biblical story of Noah's flood. These topics--young earth, flood geoology-- actually make an appearance in this film! Further, this film displays many other familiar, deplorable, YEC propaganda techniques, such as "quote mining" or outright misquoting; disengenuous representations of science, and the hisotry of science; and shameful character assassinations of those who dare to offer a scientific view that, to the YEC, seems to contradict biblical literalism. In short, this film is a bundles of lie shouded propaganda, with absolutely no truth value. It is produced by dogmatic religious zealots who, dispite always claiming the absolute moral high ground, show no hesitation or shame in lying for what they think is advancing the cause of thier faith. SKIP THIS film, unless you wish to study modern YEC propaganda tactics.

Historically distorted!

The Voyage That Shook The World is a 2009 dramatised documentary film commissioned by Creation Ministries International, a Christian Young Earth creationist organisation.
A historian featured in the film has stated that the creationist backing of the film had been concealed when he agreed to take part, that the editing of his words could give a false impression of his views, and that the film presents a historically distorted portrait of Darwin. Creation Ministries agreed that they had set up a "front company" to approach experts.
The three historians featured in the film subsequently issued a statement that they had been misrepresented by the film company's selective reconstruction of Darwin's voyage.
